We stumbled into this restaurant after deciding we didn't really want to eat much again as we had had a load of crabs for lunch. It was delightful. Very good selection of Japanese dishes. Lovely fresh sushi and sashimi.

Great restaurant. Been going here for over 20 yrs. Owners are nice and the sushi and sashimi is very consistent. The chesapeake roll is my favorite. The sukiyaki is excellent too. Won't be disappointed. They don't take reservations is the only downer. Need to go early or late if you don't like to wait like me

Joss has been on my "go to list" for longer then I can remember. Food always fresh and well presented; old stand byes stay on the menu but new, interesting items always appear. Sushi is outstanding but cooked selections are equally appealing. Wait staff is knowledgeable and attentive. If you want Japanese food Joss is a must

We've been to all of the Sushi places in Annapolis, most of them several times, and this is the best. I'm not sure what else to say.

Generous pieces of high-quality fish. Presentation is artful but not pretentious. Pricing not outrageous. Recommended!

Hands down the best Sushi place in the greater Annapolis area. Almost always have to wait to be seated and am never sorry I waited. Never disappointed.

Joss is an excellent sushi restaurant. The staff is friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. During a visit this week we met a lady who was previously stationed in Japan and drove over two hours to get there. My favorites are their avocado salad, crunchy lobster roll, spicy tuna roll and Cheapeake (crab) roll. Very good sake selection. Be sure to save... More
